/ May 26, 2011

Helena Bonham Carter has had quite the year! The King’s Speech actress was nominated for just about everything under the sun, and she was a fan favorite amongst fashionistas every time she hit the red carpet. 

In honor of Helena’s 45th birthday, check out her most outlandish outfits and let us know in the comments section which one is your fave. 

Just days before her b-day, the actress was in very good company. Helena joined Tom Hanks, Queen Elizabeth, President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama for a banquet at Buckingham Palace. 

“Over the years, we have enjoyed … any number of what we call films – and you might call movies,” the Queen told her guests, according to “[The] exchange of people and projects has enlarged and invigorated our common language – although I think you will agree we don’t always use it in quite the same way.”

Look out for Helena in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 where she plays Bellatrix Lestrange.
